This Wingstop ranch dressing recipe is the absolutely best! Loaded with buttermilk, sour cream, mayo and herbs. It tastes better than anything you can get at the store. Ready in 5 minutes.
This copycat Wingstop ranch is one of my favorite sauces. I put it on salads and use it for our Buffalo Chicken Pizza. It is so addictive. Even if you’ve tried and tasted other ranch dressings, I guarantee you are going to love this one and it will become your go-to dip for chicken wings, pizza or veggies.
The best part is, you need simple ingredients you most likely have already on hand and less than 5 minutes to whisk up.
Wingstop ranch ingredients
- Mayonnaise: Use a good quality mayonnaise like Hellmann’s or Heinz. To make it dairy-free, use vegan mayo.
- Buttermilk: Buttermilk is not only an important ingredient in baking, it is one of the key ingredients in this ranch dressing. It adds tanginess and creaminess. If you can’t get it at your local store, make it yourself. Simply add 2 tablespoons of lemon juice or vinegar to a ¼ cup of milk. Mix and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes before using. For a dairy free version, use soy milk.
- Sour cream: You can usually get it at any store. However, if you can’t, use Greek yogurt. Vegan sour cream is a great substitute to make a vegan and dairy free ranch.
- Dried herbs: The recipe calls for dried dill and parsley. Dill is another key ingredient in Wingstop ranch. Don’t leave it out! It adds freshness and a grassy flavor to the sauce and makes it so addictive.
- Onion powder: It adds a savory and sweet flavor.
- Garlic powder: Don’t use fresh garlic! It won’t work for this recipe, even if you mince it. It will overpower other flavours and you won’t be able to achieve a smooth texture.
- Lemon juice: It is an optional ingredient. Use it only if needed.
- Pepper: I love to add ¼ teaspoon pepper and a pinch of salt.
How to make Wingstop ranch from scratch
- Whisk together mayo, sour cream, buttermilk, onion powder, garlic powder, dried dill, parsley, black pepper and salt in a medium bowl.
- Adjust the seasonings and add lemon juice if needed. Transfer to a jar or an airtight container and refrigerate for 1-2 hours to before serving. This allows the flavors to combine.
I highly recommend to use Hellmann’s mayonnaise. It has a unique texture that’s hard to beat. It is super creamy and thick and is perfect for any dressing.
Sometimes I add hidden valley ranch mix and it works also well. Feel free to experiment.

Ranch dressing without mayo
Even though mayo is the key ingredient in any ranch dressing, you can still make it without it. Greek yogurt is a good substitute for mayo in this recipe. The dressing will be tasty, sour cream and buttermilk will bring creaminess and tanginess.
